The West Wing (TV Series)

Synopsis

TV Series (1999-2006). 7 Seasons. When the erudite Democrat Josiah "Jed" Bartlet is elected U.S. president, he installs his administration. He places confidants from his electoral campaigns in the White House. Each of these people play a significant role in the Washington power game: the Chief of Staff, his deputy, Communications Director and press secretary. Also in key positions are the assistants of each of the power players. We follow these people through many political battles, as well as some personal ones. Also playing roles are the First Lady, the President's daughters and the personal aide to the President. All make this series, which supposedly follows the political events (often paraphrasing historical reality) almost day by day, more than merely a political soap.
